My little man loves just about anything I juice for him. Beets, kale, carrots, celery, lemon, parsley, ginger…he will drink it (score). I started him out with simple juices and built from there. Here are 3 green, raw juices you can try out on your kids. If you’re hesitant to start with green juice Burst of Sunshine is a great starter for kids and you can omit the ginger if you want. Don’t forget to let them be a part of the juicing process, kids love to help, especially when they get to put fruits and veggies down the chute (cause who doesn’t love that part?).
3 handfuls of any greens (romaine, kale, spinach or a mix)
1/2 – 1 lemon
Loch Ness Monster
4 Kale leaves
1/2 head broccoli
5 handfuls of spinach
1 celery stalk
Remember to wash your produce thoroughly. If any of the juices are too bitter for your kiddos as you are starting out, you can always add a bit more fruit. Watch the amount though, it is still sugar. For more juicing basics: Juicing 101.
